Global Challenge Early Career Internal Small Grant 2017
The Research Committee invites research applications from Lancaster academic staff in the early stages of their research career for a grant up to a maximum of £5,000 in support of research.
This fund is intended as pump-prime funding which will lead to applications for external research funding within 12 months following the end of the grant.
Proposals are encouraged that:
- develop collaborative partnerships,
- involve interdisciplinary work or cross-university initiatives
- that will lead to a future application to a RCUK Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) call
Any member of early career staff of the University may apply for a grant in support of research and/or networking activities that will support an external grant application. Early career for the purposes of this scheme is defined as normally no more than 10 years post postgraduate degree or within 5 years of first academic appointment. Applicants may seek advice on eligibility from Research Services.
The head of department must provide a statement of support explaining why the department cannot provide the resources requested and confirming that if successful the applicant will be supported by the department mentoring process to make a viable GCRF application to an external source within 12 months following the end of the grant.
Applications should be completed using the Global Challenges small grants form.
